John Mayer to tour

Grammy Award-winning artist John Mayer will launch his first major tour in three years with a performance at Milwaukee's Summerfest on July 6, it was announced today.   This marks John's first tour in support of Born and Raised, his latest studio album, and will run through the fall, with one dollar from each ticket sold benefitting NCIRE's work supporting returning Veterans.  American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will open for John along the tour route (with the exception of Tuscaloosa, New Orleans, Kansas City and Atlantic City). 

The tour will make two L.A.-area stops: Saturday, July 27th at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater and Saturday, October 5th at the Hollywood Bowl.  Tickets for both shows will go on sale Friday, March 29th at 10 AM and will be available at and 

American Express cardholders will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to the Hollywood Bowl show before they go on sale to the general public.  This pre-sale will be available starting on Tuesday, March 26th at 10 AM through Thursday, March 28th at 10 PM. 

In advance of his tour, John will perform at an already-sold-out show at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Thursday, April 25 and will make a highly-anticipated appearance at the 2013 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.  A true heritage festival, "Jazz Fest" stands alone in presenting the highest caliber artists in such varied genres as gospel, blues, traditional and contemporary jazz, rock, R&B, Cajun, country, zydeco and much more. This year's Jazz Fest has performances scheduled for April 26 - 28 and May 2 - 5. Special ticket packages on John's tour will be available through to benefit NCIRE's work supporting returning Veterans.  For more information, go to

John's appearances in Tuscaloosa and Jazz Fest will be his first full-length concerts in three years and first public performances since his set, on January 16 of this year, at "The Livingston Town Proper: A Concert to Benefit the Fighters of the Pine Creek Fire." A special musical event organized and hosted by Mayer, the benefit occasioned his first in-concert performance as a singer since April 1, 2011.  (In March 2012, the return of a throat granuloma had forced him to cancel his first tour in two years and take an indefinite hiatus now coming to a close.)
